Art Out in the Open: Ed Muren III

Posted By on Thu, Feb 23, 2012 at 2:00 PM

While there's more and more happening these days up and down Toole Avenue between Sixth Avenue and Stone Avenue, that part of the downtown area hasn't received the same attention as the revitalization of Congress, bookended by the Fox and Rialto. One would be sorely mistaken, however, to ignore the curved road by the railroad tracks. Behind closed doors, there is a tremendous amount of art being created, and sometimes the creativity spills out into the public space.

The Battle Stags Fine Art Garage doesn't have the same level of fame of, say, Solar Culture or Dinnerware on that street. But now, thanks to sculptor and painter Ed Muren III, you know at least have a totem out front to give a quick guidepost to where it is. Tucked behind the BLX Skate Shop at Toole and 7th Ave, Battle Stags now has a pretty killer mural that hints at the creative forces surging behind the roll-up door.
